The Airborne Overnighter



Drop in!

Inspired by the bag the British Paras carried their Sten gun and ammo in, we’ve created an overnight bag with more than enough load space for a hopefully more casual and convivial trip than the boys in red berets had in mind.

Uncompromisingly hard wearing and practical, the Airborne Overnighter’s versatile design means it can be carried by hand or, by adjusting the handles, as a backpack. However, we no longer offer the option of dangling it from the leg as specified by the Paras...we have yet to have a customer arrive by parachute!

Our workshop is on Tannery Road in Carlisle, which is a clue to the long tradition of leather work in this small corner of Cumbria.

And tradition is the key to our craft skills.

Just as it takes time to create something timeless it takes time to learn the skills to do so.
